Sachse High School is the sixth new high school that WRA Architects has designed for Garland ISD. As an adaptation of their previous high school plan, this design successfully changed the image completely to provide a distinct identity for the City of Sachse. The design incorporated materials of rugged masonry and accents of metal roofing to create a 'Texas vernacular' image which the City of Sachse later used in municipal buildings.
